Hi folks, my name is John. I am retired and have lived in the South of France for the last 10 years, in the middle of the biggest vineyard in the World, the Languadoc. I took early retirement from IBM UK in 94 after screwing up my back and decided to make wooden toys. Not a good reason, but a very good result.
I am into woodturning mainly and do not like joinery very much. I like the wood to tell me not me tell it.. i.e. my joints are not the best? My lathe is a Record CL1 with a 3ø motor/controller, variable speed and it has transformed what was a reasonable lathe int a real goodie. well, I think so? You can see basically what I do by looking at my web site.
I hope to be able to add to the forum as well as ask questions. I’ll shut up for now..
-- John, I have found out that wine gets better with age. The older I get the better it gets!
